Me too on all ENCORE channels being in HD!!!!!
Except not all the encore channels are even in Hi Definition yet.
Excellent deductive and observational powers!
No it wasn't. He used it to "announce" TruTV HD and FS San Diego HD:
He announced the return of Tribune with a press release:
The band is obviously playing an Encore (spinoffs HD).
The other Encore channels in HD will be very welcome!!
Only three available in HD out of the entire eight channel Encore multiplex.
Encore-East main feed.
And two of the theme channels:
That's got to be it. Remember, he said one full-time channel and one part-time channel to start. Trutv was the full-time channel.
Fox Sports San Diego was a part time addition.
MLB Strikezone is part-time, so was San Diego (which is what was pre-announced).
Satelliteracer has stated that the remaining Encore channels will go HD this year... though things could very well have been pushed back.
BTW, I don't think it's the Encore channels.
Did you take into account the square root of the distance between your house and Moon at perigee?
I'm hopin' for BBCA before Dr Who starts.
Will go HD on D*, or in general?
Last year I upset a few people here when I spoke out against DirecTV inundating us with multiscreens of HBO and Cinemax during May and July without also delivering on basic-cable channels in high def. This was before the Sept. 9 addition of AMC HD. This was certainly before the March 7, 2012 addition, regularly, of truTV HD.
I will reiterate my position, which I believe I stated here before, just after signing on as a DBSTalk member in 2010: I want every national cable channel which has a high definition feed to be carried in HD. Ultimately that will happen, I believe, with all providers, because that's the No. 1 change in how we view television; but, of course, it takes a few years. (I am guessing it will happen at a point during the second half of this decade.)
In the meantime, there are too many missing basic-cable channels DirecTV is needing to add in HD. I prefer they come in before more focus is given to premium-movie channels. (No disrespect intended.)
im definitely alone on this one but i want FUSE HD. its looks like trash on D* sd, probably one of the worst.
Maybe the rest will be in HD by August like last year.
I have seen Fuse HD at a local Comcast. Just last year, in fact. What I viewed was studio programming, which looked really good. Fuse is owned by AMC Networks, and Comcast carries Fuse, AMC, and its other programming in HD. I didn't get a good opportunity to check out IFC HD, but We TV HD, which was airing a cooking programming (and, in another visit, a program with Joan Rivers), looked really good as well.
Isn't there a full time SEC network channel now?
